Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

November Worship Services

Sunday, November 12th, 10 a.m.
“Finding Common Ground”
led by Rev. Telos Whitfield

We look to leaders in our UU history for inspiration and guidance, and explore the
guiding principles and ways of living that gave them courage and inspiration. Looking to
the common ground we share, what do we want to know about each other that will
move us to care, and act as agents of change in the world?

Sunday, November 19th, 10 a.m.
“The Power of Words”
led by Tara Bamford

Please join us for this discussion of words and what they mean to us. The first draft of
our updated vision statement will be shared and discussed. Following that, there will be
a time for anyone who wishes to share poems, book passages, sayings and other words
that have give us hope, comfort, strength or other help through our own challenges.
